Cleveland Ohio - Marmots' Meander - Ohio City Bike Coop - Sat Jan 29th

Marmots' Meander, January 29th

On Saturday, January 29th 2011, please join us, (and invite your friends) to enjoy the winter weather and look for signs of Spring on the 8th Annual Marmots' Meander (almost) Groundhog Day Ride.

Even if you don't ride, we hope you will join us afterwards for the first opening day of our new shop, at 1840 Columbus Road, right across from old location. (Look for news about a special, "grand opening" in the Spring.)

Not sure you can (or want to) ride in the cold? It's not as hard (or miserable) as you might think -- take a look at our Winter Riding Tips (and preview our chili recipe*).

Meet (at the new shop) after 10am, ride leaves around 11am. Supper* served (back at the new shop) beginning at 1pm.

Ride (6 to 40 miles, flat terrain) to Clark Field sledding hill (3 miles); stay for sledding, or continue to the new Ohio Erie Canal Reservation Mountain Bike Trail (7 miles); ride the trail (if it's not wet) and/or continue south on the Towpath Trail into the Cuyahoga Valley National Park. Return on the same route**.

Helmets are required (loaners available), and mountain bikes are recommended (a limited number are available for rent, or for loan to members who clean and tune them up afterwards). Bring any sleds, skis or snowboards you can carry (some loaners will be provided, and transported). We'll break out our old ski-bikes, and try out the newest version -- a ski that straps onto any bike's front tire. Bike-washing equipment and shop stands for drying and re-lubing will be available after the ride.

* Hot Cider and Cocoa will be provided at the sledding hill; supper is vegan Chili with meat and dairy on the side. Potluck side dishes and beverages are welcome.

** Some members will be carrying tools along, but this is an unsupported ride. Bring a lock if your bike will be unattended.

This event is free and open to all, but of course donations are always appreciated to pay for food and heat, and to help fund our year-round bicycle education work.
We hope to see many of you there -- Think Snow!
